Sarea Dancing is a fallen angel, stranded on earth until farther notice. Demons, hungry for the immortalizing properties of angel blood, hunt Sarea by night. Humans, blissfully unaware of the supernatural around them, hunt her by day simply for being different. This new, unfamiliar world is fraught with danger and risks. Can Sarea find her way back into the skies? Or will the demons catch up with her first?

Amy Keister is an ordinary girl. Well, as ordinary as it is possible to be while you're Jesus' little sister.
God has decided that the world has forsaken him, and sends down "The Next Jesus" in way of a solution.

Being a prophet isn't easy in the age of science and technology, and Amy begins to doubt her own work. When she is told by God that she must dump her boyfriend, she finally breaks, and runs away.

But can she ever escape being God's plaything?

With a name like Strange, he was doomed from the day he was born. With is unusual appearance and even more unusual name, regardless of how he tried he always became the object of his friends taunts and his relatives disapprovals. Strange was an outcast. That was until he found a portal to the world of Windo, a race that dislikes mankind, a race just like him.

Then he discovered a plan for Windo to take over earth, in their self-righteous plans to restore earth to its Utopian state before humans ruined it. Of course the intentions of Windo were good, but something didn't seem right. Now it's up to Strange to go against the Windo and find a way to save mankind.

Nutcracker bombs is the story of ballets, revolutions, and death. Each year on Christmas Eve, a highly exclusive showing of a ballet is set up for politicians, billionares, and foreign dignitaries. It is invitation only and hosted by a mysterious, unnamed man.

The evening begins with the guests arriving at midnight (right as the night gives way to Christmas Day) dressed for a masquerade ball, which is held in, of course, the ballroom. The night's benefactor, donning his usual mask, greets the visitors, and the doors of the mansion are locked. At one o'clock, they proceed to the theatre, where they are served a world-class dinner as the lights fade and the dancers walk onstage.

This year's performance is The Nutcracker.

However, unbeknownst to the guests, the night's benefactor has been murdered and replaced. This new benefactor has new plans. Revealing himself as the actor playing the Nutcracker, he approaches the audience and says, "Tonight is a night of world-wide revolution."

And with that, he explains how each of their seats is wired with explosives that will be set off the moment they try to stand up.

So the night begins.

Trying to get to heaven without Jesus is like climbing to the summit of Mount Everest naked. You die before it happens.

Next Title: Forever Wounded
A hero isn’t defined by winning. Loads of heroes die in the effort. Most of them never get any recognition. No, a hero is just somebody who does the right thing when it would be far, far easier to do nothing.
